Welcome To The Morelli Comeback Tour
Quick! Stop pouring lighter fluid on that #14 jersey! Anthony Morelli is at the NFL Scouting Combine to work out for pro scouts, hoping to jump-start his football career. He was last employed by the Arizona Cardinals, who cut him after signing him as an undrafted free agent in 2008.
“I’ve gotten bigger, faster, stronger,” Morelli told The Associated Press. “I think the chances are pretty good, I just need to get in front of some people.”
That’s all well and good, but remember that the common knock of Morelli was his decision-making. I recall hearing “Morelli has all the tools, he just needs the right quarterbacks coach to teach him” so much that it would appear in my dreams. Now perhaps it was a lack of elite athleticism that kept him from playing, but I’m willing to bet that if that was an issue, it was one of multiple.
Either way, good luck to the quarterback that was so embattled at Penn State that he was sent death threats. As long as he stays far, far away from my team of choice, I hope he finds a roster spot. If this doesn’t work out, he’s going Uncle Rico on all of us.
